Just over a year ago we launched Calgary’s first daytime support service designed for people living with young-onset dementia.

At YouQuest, we set out to give our participants a place to belong with peers and an active day filled with choices, while providing much-needed respite and support to care partners. The feedback from our families categorically tells us we’ve reached our goal, but we continue to listen and fine tune our service. 

With recreation therapists Bev Hillman and Melissa Olin in the lead, we’ve covered a lot of ground this last year and have had the privilege of making deep friendships. Many of our experiences are showcased in this first newsletter.  We hope you enjoy reading about our progress and look forward to your feedback.

Thank you for helping us give a valuable day of wellness each week to those with young-onset dementia.
